This past week, Steve Green, Ed Shadle and Keith Zanghi attended IMTS 2012 in Chicago (International Manufacturing and Technology Show). During the week the team split off between the Geomagic Software and IMS Software booths.  The North American Eagle™ was an integral part of both booths with the display of our 7.5 foot and 3 foot long models, along with 55 inch LED TVs with NAE videos and graphics. 


With over 97,000 attendees, it is the largest machine tool show in the United States.  We made a lot of new friends at IMTS 2012 and renewed many others. We had a great time and want to thank the folks at Geomagic Software and IMS Software for inviting us.  We want to thank Rachael Dalton-Taggart from Geomagic Software for aranging all the interviews with the industry trade magazines.  Below are highlights of the past week.
